The Greenville Kennel Club hosts two shows a year in February and July.
Visitors to the Greenville Dog Show and potential dog owners have the opportunity to interact with breeders and owners to gather information before purchasing a pet. Most breeders and show people are more than willing to give information about their breed because they want potential owners to be well-informed before making that lifelong commitment.
This is an American Kennel Club sanctioned event. At shows, dogs are judged against their individual breed's standard. Each winner is awarded from one to five points based on the number of entries in their respective breed. These points advance a dog towards its Champion title. Over the course of the day, the entrants are narrowed down to a single dog - Best In Show. In Junior Showmanship competition, children aged 10-18 will exhibit their own dogs as they compete for prizes by displaying their skills in handling dogs. There will also be obedience trials that range from doing basic exercises like sitting to advanced exercises where there are no verbal commands and/or selecting the one scented item from a group.
There is no admission fee and makes a great family outing. There are vendors featuring many dog and pet-related items, such as food and toys, books and magazines, as well as concessions offering a variety of food items for you and your family.
Notice: Only dogs entered in the event are permitted on the show grounds.
For the safety of the dogs entered, baby strollers are prohibited.
Trophies and Rosettes
Like many shows, we are always looking for people and/or businesses to sponsor rosettes, prizes and trophies. If you would like to sponsor one of these, please contact the Trophy chair, Kari Hill.
